•  APS Making A Difference
    The purpose of Title II, Part A funding is to increase the academic achievement of all students by helping schools and school districts improve teacher and principal quality.  Under Title II, Part A, private school teachers, principals, and other educational personnel are eligible to participate in academic improvements to the extent that the Atlanta Public School System uses these funds to provide high quality professional development.  Private schools receiving the funds are held accountable for making improvements in student academic achievement and must consult with the Atlanta Public School System in the development of he required Title II, Part A Plan.


    Title II, Part A funds will not flow directly to your school.  However, your staff will be eligible to participate in a variety of activities selected to address the highest priority needs of all students attending your school.  The level of participation for your staff will be based on your school's enrollment for the 2013-2014 school year.  If your school chooses to participate in the Title II, Part A program, you must formulate a Title II, Part A Needs Assessment and Title II, Part A Plan.
